Phat Kat & DJ Dister - The S.O.S. Project (CD)
Legendary Detroit emcee Phat Kat and Berlin bred DJ/Producer DJ Dister announce their new album The S.O.S. Project.
Standing for “So Old School ” Dister’s soulful but dusty-break laden beats (which defined the J Dilla /Slum Village era) provides the perfect backdrop for Kat’s fiery 90’s honed flow. Speaking on how they linked up Dister said “we initially recorded a track called “Rappin Ass Rapper’s” on my album Consistent Knockouts (2015). The vibe was so dope that we decided to do a whole project together.”
The first evidence of this chemistry is in the single “Revolt For Change ” a scathing social commentary as Kat says is “about police brutality excessive force and how our citizens are being treated like animals and the current situation our country and community is in.” Other tracks salute The “D” (as his home city is known) and retrace his personal Hip-Hop history (“The Monument ” feat DJ Dez) or relate tales from the crime side (“Shots”, “Storm”).
An emcee’s emcee Phat Kat (aka Ronnie Euro) initially came up in the mid 90’s as part of a duo with J Dilla (then known as Jay Dee) known as 1st Down . Though legal troubles halted the group’s momentum, Kat and Dilla collaborated consistently over the following years. Kat’s recorded output also includes work with Black Milk, Slum Village, Elzhi, Guilty Simpson, Obie Trice and Flying Lotus . He has also toured worldwide including frequent trips to Europe to perform.
With a resume that stretches back fifteen years, DJ Dister was a strong part of the Berlin, Germany true-school Hip-Hop scene. In 2005 as part of the Born 2 Roll crew, he helped to organize the Born 2 Roll night, a monthly event at the Cassiopeia Club. This popular event drew thousands of attendees for over a decade and also drew performances from such names as KRS -One and De La Soul. He released two albums as a producer including the debut Roll Wit Dis (2013) which featured appearances from Masta Ace, Kool G Rap, KRS-One, Fashawn and others. 2015’s Consistent Knockouts featured Jeru The Damaja, eMC, Phat Kat and others. Dister now resides in Los Angeles, CA and is working on several EP’s and albums currently.
